The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.

Wednesday, April 4:
· 2–3 p.m.: Fulbright Student Program Workshop: An overview of Fulbright programs available for students and recent alumni and a discussion of the application process.
· 3:30–5 p.m.: Fulbright Scholar Program Workshop: An overview of Fulbright programs available for faculty and administrators, a review of the application and selection process.
Being selected for the program accompanies joining a prestigious community of other Fulbright alumni who have achieved distinction in many fields, including 57 who have been awarded the Nobel Prize, 82 who have received Pulitzer Prizes, and 37 who have served as a head of state or government.
